Kimberly Bea fell in love with Greek mythology in the fifth grade, a love that led her to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees in Ancient History. A California native, she moved to Minnesota for graduate school and (surprisingly) never left. She has had fiction published in the anthologies Den of Thieves andSpring: Dreams and Nightmares edited by Carol Hightshoe and poetry in the anthology Nothing But Red edited by Skyla Dawn Cameron. A member of SCBWI and Minnesota Speculative Fiction Writers, Kimberly enjoys knitting and crocheting, making beaded jewelry, and belly dance. She is represented by Z.R. Ellor of the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.
